DEERFIELD — The First Church of Deerfield has sold its parsonage for $875,000 to two former tenants.
On Feb. 28, the Old Main Street church in the center of Old Deerfield sold the yellow colonial house at 46 Old Main St. to Andres and Denise Galperin, who have rented the building for two years.
The Rev. Ann L. Hallstein said no minister has lived in the parsonage for about 10 years.
Hallstein became minister six years ago. She never lived in the two-story house because she felt it was too big for just her.
“It was an ongoing concern as far as its maintenance and upkeep,” said Hallstein.
The church, which practices a combined faith of United Church of Christ and Unitarian, will put the money in its endowment fund.
